ABOUT OUR GUITAR PROGRAM (AGES 6+)
Guitar, ukulele, and bass guitar instruction is offered as a weekly 30, 45, or 60 minute private lesson. Beginner, intermediate, and advanced lessons are available for both acoustic and electric in a variety of different styles such as rock, pop, jazz, folk, bluegrass, and more. We love to work with both casual and serious learners alike, and are happy to accommodate any unique goal you may have.
GUITAR FOR BEGINNERS
All of our guitar instructors love working with beginners, and have experience creating a structured program to help students master all the foundational aspects of not only guitar technique, but also rhythm, theory, and reading music in both standard and tab notation. Instructors will use both method books and the student’s favorite songs to teach concepts. Beginning students at Expressions have a blast playing amazing songs from day one while learning these critical foundations.
GUITAR FOR EXPERIENCED STUDENTS
Whether students have been self-taught, have experience from another instructor or school, or gained all their experience at Expressions, we know how to help them reach the next goal. Intermediate or advanced students learn how to play more challenging music and fine tune and polish their playing by mastering more advanced techniques and theoretical applications. Whether students want to learn a new style, improve on their finger picking or soloing, get good enough to join a band, or just keep playing for fun, we have the skills and experience to get them there.
GUITAR FOR ADULTS
We have many adult students from all different backgrounds who take guitar lessons with us. Many are self-taught and looking for help to get them to the next level, and many others have had lessons on and off and looking to brush up on some skills. Regardless of your background and goals, our guitar instructors absolutely love working with adults, and they know how to make lessons comfortable and rewarding. Whether you like to jam out to rock, pop, jazz, blues, folk, bluegrass, worship styles, or any other music, we can make you sound your best. Learn more about our adult music lessons here.
UKULELE AND BASS GUITAR LESSONS
We also offer ukulele and bass guitar lessons to students of any age or skill level. Ukulele in particular is a great option for kids, teens, or adults as it is generally more affordable, accessible and easier to play than guitar.

WHAT SETS US APART
MOST QUALIFIED AND DIVERSE TEACHING FACULTY
We are able to attract the best instructors in the area because they want to teach here. Every one of our instructors has been screened, auditioned, interviewed, and selected to teach our students with the utmost patience and care. It takes a special type of person with a special type of personality to make a great teacher, and we have only those types. All our instructors either hold or are pursuing music degrees in music and all have had prior experience teaching music.
FLEXIBLE SCHEDULING AND MAKEUP OPTIONS 7 DAYS A WEEK
We have many weekday afternoon and evenings and Saturday and Sunday morning and afternoon lesson times, and were open all year round, including the summer. If you need to cancel your lesson or change your lesson time, no problem! Our busy families love our convenient unlimited makeup lesson and schedule change policy.
FREE MONTHLY RECITALS
Students want to feel motivated to practice and parents want to see progress, and our optional recitals accomplish both these objectives. We offer a variety of recital options and themes in our very own concert hall every month so you can choose the ideal time to fit into your busy schedule. We pride ourselves on our well-organized, warm, supportive performance events which never last longer than an hour... and they’re entirely free for all involved!
ALL LESSON MATERIALS PROVIDED
All of our students are given an official Expressions binder and tote bag to carry all of their materials and keep them organized. And when your instructor notifies us that you need the next book or an additional book, we will order it for you for pick-up at your next lesson! All method, theory, sight-reading, and technique books, sheet music, flashcards, notebooks, binders, tote bag, recitals, and our Level Up Music Achievement Program are included in the affordable monthly tuition.
MONTH TO MONTH LESSON STRUCTURE
No long term quarterly or annual commitments. Students are only committed to a month at time.
